The birth of a child brings any new mother a flood of emotions, and with a premature baby, the emotions only grow. This fall, the Omaha World-Herald featured author and 2004 Papillion-La Vista South graduate Lindsay Nolan on their Momaha website. After her son was born eight weeks early, at just under 3 lbs, Lindsay spent months by his side in the hospital. Some of her time there was spent writing and illustrating a book for baby Henry.

"Peanut: A story for mighty preemie babies," is available to purchase at Amazon.com.

Lindsay Nolan is married to her husband, Danny, and is the mommy of a little peanut named Henry. Born two months premature after Lindsay developed preeclampsia early in her pregnancy, Henry arrived at 2 lbs., 15 ounces. Lindsay wrote “Peanut” while living at the hospital during Henry’s NICU stay and illustrated the book based off of actual photos and events. Her hope is to offer support to other parents of preemie babies who share a common experience of love, as well as to thank NICU doctors and nurses who go above and beyond in their work. "Peanut" is a children's book for our babies...and for us. Lindsay earned her BA in Journalism: Public Relations and Advertising from the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and her MA in Managerial Communication, Human Resource Management from Bellevue University. The Nolan family resides in Omaha, Nebraska.
